The all time favourite with succulent pieces of freshly prepared chicken.
Slow smoked beef Brisket in a toasted Rye with layers of Pickles, Swiss Cheese, Coleslaw and house made zesty BBQ sauce. Very American Deli, very tasty. Served with Chips or Onion Rings.
Grilled tortilla full of slow smoked, spicy Lamb, Asiago cheese, Spring onions and BBQ sauce.
I loved the friendly service and awesome food
Best ribs/smokehouse/American style bbw place I’ve been to in Australia - for sure!
Third Wave Cafe is a must-do for satisfying every craving in your body. Treated my partner to a birthday dinner here and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend the pork ribs and if you're lucky enough to make the November 'Bacon Burger' special, GET IT !!
Great meat options
Fantastic BBQ meats, friendly and helpful staff. Great place to get together with friends and eat your heart out.
The best BBQ in Melbourne a must for the BBQ enthusiast... order the beef ribs
It’s one of my favourite best place for smoky meaty meals with bold flavours.
Excellent BBQ, worth to visit.
Amazing food with fantastic burgers and loaded fries.
Nice weekday dinner ??
The food was fine, but would not return or recommend, on account of the rude service from the bearded man with a French accent.
Good food. Portion looks small but we ended up having some to takeaway because we were too full. Recommend the pork ribs.
Service was impeccable although he seemed a little confused with the reservation but managed to seat us immediately anyways. The wine glass had a wierd smell to it and the toilets were terribly kept...the meat was great although the serving sizes have dropped a lot since i was there last. Wont be going back in a hurry but the ribs were amazing and worth going back for! :-)
Amazing food, always recommend Third Wave Cafe to all of my friends. Best BBQ in the whole of Melbourne!
Fantastic food and service.
Love the fork festival prices!!
The food was great and the wait staff was lovely. However, the manager gave us a hard time when it came to paying our bill. With a party of 10, it was clear that we only ordered 10 main dishes and when told there was a mistake in our bill (two meals were doubled charged), he wanted to find someone to blame. He made us feel uncomfortable as he wanted to single out a staff member who took our order and did not want to accept that it was a simple mistake. We did not take the extra two meals that were incorrectly placed on our bill, so we were just asking to be charged accordingly. We had such a lovely lunch for my husband's birthday, but the service at the end left a bitter taste in our mouth =[
We'll be back and order less food since we were stuffed and had to get doggie bags for the dogs. It got painfully noisy by about 7pm when it was filling up so we'll be dining early again next time.
Wholesome and hearty food. Tender and well cooked meats.
Good service. Food was average

Third wave cafe is a charming little place in Port Melbourne with an ambient interior and beachy outdoor area. Third Wave doubles as a cafe by day and an American-style BBQ house by night. Meats are slow cooked and smoked with a range of different woods like hickory and apple, producing delicious and subtle flavours. The juicy pork ribs are done Southern style using dry spices and two different kinds of sauces. And their beef ribs are made from a one-of-a-kind recipe, with an unforgettable blend of nine spices and hot sauce. They even have a number of Russian dishes that include the crepe-like blintzes, filled with meat, cheese or vegetarian ingredients, and Russian dumplings known as pelmeni. This place is just full of surprises! Their specials menu will wow you with super-delicious American goodies like the maple syrup candied bacon and Texan fried brisket. Gluten free options are aplenty and vegetarians need not miss out.
